Sorry, I realize this is an old thread, but wanted to post an update on this case.
The Tire store manager Atibi Thomas went to trial in March 2013 and the jury deadlocked on the charges of attempted murder and aggravated assault. It was reported that they came close to convicting him on the later charge. He was acquitted on a third charge of beating the Police Officer with a gun due to lack of evidence. The District Attorney has announced that he plans to retry this case.
A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.
